Many people have heard now about the incident at the Republican National Convention where two white men supposedly threw peanuts at a black camerawoman for CNN, telling her that is how they fed animals at the zoo.
This incident fits right in with the media narrative that the Republican Party is the party of white racists.
Yet there are a lot of details about this incident that either do not add up or raise a lot of questions.
The CNN Camerawoman is now identified as Patricia Carroll. Based on her comments she made to a blog, she appears to be a liberal.
This story could be true but there are a lot of things about this story that are raising enough flags that many more questions need to be asked.
Let’s start with a few.
First, this is a CNN CAMERAWOMAN. Where the hell was her camera? According to her two other cameramen and a reporter came over to see the ruckus. They did not hear what was said.
In that crowded room of thousands of people, how does an event like this happen and no one else hears it? How is it that something like that happens and no one gets video or even a photo of it? You could probably count the number of people at the convention who do not have phones with cameras on one hand.
Who are these people who were supposedly throwing peanuts? Reporters pride themselves on finding out information for news stories. They discover classified projects and scandals. The can identify former Navy Seals who write books. Do you mean none of them can find out who these guys were?
Does anyone have any idea how tough it is to get into that convention? If you do not have the proper credential, you get nowhere near the event. Do you think if these guys were ejected, someone tried to find out who they were and if they were properly on the floor of the convention?
Who is the RNC official who allegedly apologized and claimed the men doing it were alternate delegates? If he knew they were alternate delegates, he probably has some idea who they are.
Where are the witnesses to this event, other than the guys who were allegedly throwing the peanuts?
According to Patricia Carroll, they were causing such a ruckus that other colleagues came over to investigate. How is it possible that such a ruckus was created that attracted the attention of other reporters and not the attention of other attendees? If so, why hasn’t the media tried to interview them?
This incident may or may not have happened. CNN’s coverage of the Republican Convention has been so egregiously biased that the claim by the reporter that she was tormented by a couple of white guys based on her race fits right in with the narrative they are trying to spin.
The simple truth here is there are a lot of questions. Clara Peller was made famous almost thirty years ago with the famous hamburger question, “Where’s the beef?”
In this case, the question is, “where’s the proof?”
The simplest explanation is usually the correct answer. An idiot made racist remarks/action. Said idiot(s) were thrown out.
Political opponents of the Republican party made much of the idiots and little of the prompt correct response.
No Conspiracy necessary.
Supposedly, there was a CNN Camerawoman (the alleged "victim") plus two other cameramen nearby when peanuts were thrown.
Can CNN produce ANY pictures of the alleged throwers?, or pictures of peanuts on the convention floor like spent shells in a drive-by shooting?
If not why should anyone believe the incident happened at all?
If 3 News camera operators can't find and operate one camera long enough to record a few peanuts on a floor, they aren't worth a cameraman's pay... but at least one of those 3 people might be a liar/activist working for Barrack Obama''s campaign.
If there was any truth to the allegation, pictures would be all over the TV and Internet. But even pictures if peanuts on the floor suddenly arise, it only costs $1 for a pack of peanuts at a convenience store. The alleged "victim" could have brought them with her and dumped them on the floor herself.
Oh. But maybe a conscientious Housekeeper working for the convention hall swept them up before the alleged "victim's" cameraman pals arrived. <== "Pfffffftttt!"
A reasonable person might figure the peanut incident never really happened, but an assault on Truth for propaganda value probably did occur.
Nuts to CNN.
Race Baiting is the rule of the game for the Libs, what else can they yell about?
Wait-wait...was she wearing a blue dress? Simple fact: if anyone from the "Clintong-Noise-Network" told me the sun was out and it was noon in Flagstaff Arizona, I'd just naturally have to go check. I'll wager that these "peanut throwing white guys" are just as valid as all the dead, illegal and multiple democoward voters that are sure to plague the elections in November.
They were the same guys who yelled "n*****" at the group of black congressmen. Morey and Mink...imaginary conservatives from space.....The space between liberal ears.
I'm surprised that they didn't try to claim that some black folks were shot to death during the RNC Convention. I mean, surely they're were........somewhere in this country. Like in....Chicago.
just one more lie about us. it's to be expected from these people who r so desperate to maintain the status quo.
I have a better question, "Who cares?" What does this have to do with the Romney/Ryan message and why are we letting the media divert our attention from the real issues?
Let me get his straight, the whole Republican Party is responsible because supposedly two idiots were throwing peanuts at a black CNN Camera woman, but 0Bama is not responsible for Bidden claiming that all Blacks would be put back in chains if Romney/Ryan is elected?
Are the Democrats responsible for the Black Panthers promise of violence? I mean they have publicly supported and endorsed 0Bama... and apparently somebody at the Justice Department was ordered that they be given a free ride over voter fraud and intimidation and the well publicized conspiracy to commit murder and kidnap in the Zimmerman case...
Let's not let them distract us from the real issues with this slight of hand trick. When confronted with this by liberals I simply say, "If it's true I don't even care, it has nothing to do with the message and purpose of the Conservative Movement."
Frankly that is a good sound byte, some of us might want to rehearse it.
For a party and administration that has "built itself" on nothing but LIES for the past 4 years, I find it highly unlikely that any of them would start telling the TRUTH now! Lies are really all they've got to go on!
We all know that they have nothing, no record at all to stand on. We all know that the only way they can win is to lie, slander, accuse, pass the buck, blame someone else, threaten, cheat at the polls and anything else that is ugly and twisted.
They have NO character, not even a tiny weenie sliver of character. When they do seem to show anything resembling character they are most probably faking and lying. I am sure we could get a good long list of the backhanded set ups they have staged to make anyone decent look bad. Look at the people they have slandered and drug through the mud. Look what they did to Cain, Palin and so many others with fabricated stories. My gosh, they even made Romney look like a murderer because a Bain employee lost a job and she got cancer. Yes! It was Romney's fault she died.
They will stop at NOTHING to discredit anyone that is not in support of "the chosen one." I can't think of a time when it wasn't a down right dirty lie. This is who we are dealing with. The sickening part is that the media is right there with them. Man, what this government has sunk to!
My question, exactly, when I read about this. Who were the people who came to her aid? Where WAS her camera - as she said that she doesn't think that they knew she was a camera woman...where are the witnesses?
